and george washington law professor jonathan turley. jeff, first, i want to give you an opportunity to respond to what the attorney general said, either the personal part or about his legal argument. >> i'm sorry he's not a fan, but the point here is the united states supreme court has dealt with this issue in many different ways over many years. the public employee, the free speech rights of public employees is a longstanding subject before the supreme court. the most recent case, 2006, involves a deputy district attorney in los angeles who was fired, and the supreme court upheld his firing. it's not an identical case, but if you look at the range of these cases, clearly the direction the court is moving is towards less and less free speech protection for stuff that is a heck of a lot less offensive than the stuff that shirvell has been doing. >> let me challenge you on that a little bit because i'm certainly not a lawyer, but what i've just read from the supreme court is if the public official is talking about something of public concern, which i guess you could argue, you know, t

is jonathan turley, an expert on constitutional law at george washington university. and he also has experience as lead council in a state secrets case. all right, professor, i'm glad you could be with us. does this case merit a state secret privilege? >> well, i have to say, i find it questionable. because the indication really raises a very simple and threshold issue, and that is, can the president of the united states on his own authority simply say, i'm going to kill this citizen? now, obviously the administration has some very good reasons to want to capture him. but to do a targeted assassination of a citizen without any due process raises obvious concerns. but really before we get to that, the problem with the privilege assertion is that this question can be answered without access to most of that information. i mean, presents a constitutional question, not a -- really a national security question in terms of the details of what's happening in yemen or any other country. >> what do you mean? how would this -- how would it be that this case would be argued without the national

of the senate impeachment trial committee, good morning. my name is jonathan turley and i have the honor of representing united states district court judge g. thomas poteous and joining me with daniel schwartz, keith arzata, john walsh, pj, dan o'connor from the law firm of brian cave. senators, if the parties agree on one thing, it is this. by any measure this is a historic moment. it's not simply because the constitutional proceeding has only occurred 14 times in our history. it's a proceeding that the framers crafted with the likes of james madison to guide your actions today, this week, and in this case. in the history of this republic, in over two centuries, there's only been seven federal judges of thousands that have been removed under this standard. now, for past senators and frankly current senators it would be an easy thing to simply convict a judge and yield to the passions of controversy. yet, this is an occasion where the senate has given a specific duty to adjudicate, not just legislate or deliberate. impeachments are not about one judge. they're about all judges. and the c
